Nine times out of ten I'm using one of my tulip glasses. Occasionally I'll use a British pub glass and very rarely, when drinking German beers, I'll use my German stein or a pilsner glass.
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.

Try the dishwasher. It stripped the Guinness logo off my stout glass (before I heard the dishwasher was bad of course)

I prefer a small fishbowl I got at dollar store
My wife is like a well crafted beer...bitter, yet sweet enough to balance perfectly!

Would leaded glass be an issue with antique beer glassware?

I think what I'd want to get eventually to enjoy all my beers in is one Sam Adams glass and one Chimay. Both are laser etched in the bottom so they continually release aromas, I'd want the Sam for just generic Lagers and Ales but the Chimay for belgians and strong ales like barleywines and things of that nature.

I like the Sam Adams glass, or a tulip, though I use my fair share of your run of the mill pint glasses. As long as it has beer in it, I probably won't complain. I do find myself looking at different glasses and the beers within them and criticizing, just a little bit

I would have to say 90% of my beer glasses are from antique, consignment or Goodwill type stores. All different shapes, sizes, and all different logos (no contemporary pints though). The only new ones I have are from New Glarus and Fat Tire.

Snifter/SS tulip pub. And a generic coke style-shape glass. I like using the snifter for anything hoppy I havent tried yet,otherwise if I had it already I may get out the ol standby pint glass mainly. I mainly will drink out of the suggested drinkware per style,but like to change it up alot the time. The pint is a nice goto glass if I cant decide and just want to taste a good tasting beer.

I have what I would call a classic beer mug that holds about 10 oz that I love. I also use a Mason jar stolen from a Bloomington bar quite a bit.
